  3. 2nd Unique Clock combining Kokomo Glass and stabilized pen blanks

    Yesterday, I finished my first clock which combines colorful Kokomo glass and green stabilized pen blanks from Penn State industries. I posted it previously here. Today, I finished the 2nd clock, but instead of green and white glass, I used brown-white Kokomo glass number 11. I used a yellow...
  4. Blue Clock combining Kokomo glass and pen blanks

    I like working with colorful Kokomo glass. No pieces are the same colors because it is hand mixed in a random fashion. I also found some very unique stabilized box elder pen blanks from Penn State Industries. I tried out my design on green glass first and posted it on this web site. Next I...
  5. Quilt Frame w/acrylic inlay

    My mom made this small decorative quilt that she wanted me to frame. I made the frame from some old oak I had laying around. The corners are half lap joints that extend out of the corners only 3/16 inch. I made the inlay by cutting thin slices off an acylic pen blank. I was inspired by this...

    I bought a 9" craftsman drill press on craigslist for 70$ to drill pen blanks since I was messing it up with a regular drill. but the travel of the chuck (quill) is not long enough to drill the hole in one pass on a 2 1/4" blank. The ruler on the side shows 2". Needless to say I am...
  8. Woodturning
    Please comment on my recent experiment with gluing tubes into wood blanks. In the future, I plan to use Titebond Polyurethane for this purpose, but since I'd had mixed results using Epoxy and 'Super Glue' I decided to experiment with Titebond II. My blank of Marblewood was cut perpendicular to...

    Hey all - I'm looking for three ancient kauri pen blanks. Co-worker is a kiwi ex-pat and would like some pens turned. My go to source here in Canada penblanks.ca doesn't have any currently listed and any American sites I've found either won't ship to Canada or are charging huge fees to do so...
  11. Focus on the Workspace
    I've purchased a small solid oak workbench from harbor freight for $150. It's OK - it came with only a shoulder vise and provides nowhere near the amount of rigidity I'll need to handplane. I've been told that you can glue the joints to help with this but the more I get into woodworking the more...
